Recent Win 7 updates hide WHR G54 router
« on: April 01, 2011, 09:16:23 pm »

Recently (January) purchased Acer 0721 netbook (with wireless BGN, 64-bit Win, Avast Pro AV, and spybot) has suddenly been having conflicts with Win 7 critical updates. They cause it to be unable to see the router access point. Technically, it shows my wireless network connected but with internet access blocked by a public network, and the router doesn't show up at all in the mapping.

I chose a Restore Point about March 20 (when I knew it worked fine) and problem disappeared. While online the day after the Restore Point fix, windows update came on automatically, knocked me offline, and blocked internet access again. Restored prior to last few updates and stopped the automatic update. It's working again, but I'd like to know what updates might be causing the problem so I can load the other critical updates.

Not a geek so don't get too tech-y, please.

This will have to be discussed with Microsoft. It has nothing to do with our product.
